Some members of the MiCoOp attended the iNACOL Symposium 2018 in Nashville, TN in October 2018. Eve Kaltz and Lisa Oleski from Center Line Public Schools, Dave Eichberg and Amy Williams from Berrien Springs Public Schools, and John VanWagoner from Alpena Pubilc Schools ran a workshop, sharing their innovative programs that re-engage students who have not effectively connected through traditional instructional models. Eve, Dave, and John, along with Jim Bermingham (retired Berrien Springs superintendent), also sat on a panel to provide information about the Michigan CoOp with attendees from multiple states around the country. We also enjoyed getting together with other Michigan districts at a social event. View a few photos taken during the iNACOL Symposium 2018 here.
